This year’s edition of the Edinburgh International Swim Meet is stacked with talent, as Olympians and Worlds medalists are all set to dive into the Royal Commonwealth Pool.

The meet represents an important tune-up for the all-important British Swimming Championships slated for April. That event is the sole qualifying opportunity for the World Championships.

As in the past, British Swimming has set its World Championships qualification standards much quicker than the FINA ‘A’ cuts in most instances.

For example, the men’s 50m free FINA ‘A’ cut is 22.18 while British swimmers need to dip under 21.79 to go to Budapest. The women’s 100m fly, as another example, has its FINA ‘A’ cut at 58.33 while British Swimming’s standard is 56.99.

Those consideration times are absolutely ridiculous. Alot of them seem to just be slightly faster than Britain’s fastest recent PB in the event like Greenbank’s 100 Back, Jones 100 Fly and Anderson’s 200 Free. I guess ut is so that British Swimming have more ‘Discretionary’ Choices that they won’t use once more since at Olympic Trials i think we were all suprised with how many swimmers made QTs. All to take less swimmers and spend less money.
